I am a former educator with three years of experience teaching applied math and biological sciences to middle and high school students in the private sector. I have core content specialties in Algebra, Chemistry and Biology. My teaching knowledge further includes classical in-classroom instruction as well as 4MAT learning that focuses in on a pupil's innate learning abilities to drive comprehension and customize teaching for their learning style. I have experience in organizational and adolescent behavior with acumen in instructional guide. Since becoming a full-time tutor, I have been successful in bridging gaps with learning disabilities and positively influencing at-risk youth through academic coaching and counseling.
In addition, my tutoring knowledge spans formal testing (i.e. PSAT/SAT/ACT/GED/ASVAB/GRE and the Georgia Work Ready Assessment) as I have taken a battery of various exams over the years and know first-hand some of the challenges that students encounter. I provide my students with essential test taking techniques and knowledge to successfully score higher on these standard test, as I believe studying the material is 20% of what is needed and knowing "how" to take the test is 80% of what is expected. I am able to convey key concepts in a precise and transparent manner, while helping the student to become engaged.
As a working professional, I have utilized my knowledge to resolve issues and overcome daily operational challenges in my past positions. I have acquired professionalism and vital interpersonal skills to interact with people from all walks of life. I'm outgoing and manage time well and have been noted for my volunteer efforts. I consider myself a Christian and spend needed time mentoring youth. I like to stay active by playing basketball and engaging in outdoor sports. This diverse background enables me to have a unique perspective on learning and offer my expertise in various academic areas.

Agile, competent, understanding and a natural at educating
Jacoby has helped me tremendously already with recalling and re-mastering basic algebra, geometry and quantitative reasoning concepts preparing to take the math section of the GRE. He is responsive and attuned to what areas I need to work on, adapting each session to areas where I'm struggling. His teaching style is patient yet persistent, and I can already tell he has a vested interest in improving my learning outcomes. If you're looking for a quality tutor in any of his core competencies, Jacoby is the way to go!Carl, 3 lessons with JacobyTutor responded:

Asvab with Jacoby
He was very professional. I liked how he was encouraging with my son and patient. There were some problem solving techniques my son had not thought of and I this these lessons will help him alto on the Asvab. Jacoby even gave him homework which I love. I think this will be a sacrifice well worth it.KIMINI, 23 lessons with Jacoby
Jacoby B did an awesome job helping my daughter close the gaps in skills she needed to prepare for her Math midterm. He was very patient, extremely knowledgeable, and very skilled at what he does. Being an educator myself, I was very pleased with his skill level and the way he provided instruction. In addition to helping my daughter with her Math skills, he also helped to boost her confidence. I am glad we choice to go this route. After the first lesson I was already asking him to please make room in his schedule to see her weekly. He is an AWESOME tutor.Kimberly , 5 lessons with JacobyTutor responded:

Knowledgeable and Patient
Jacoby was able to bring knowledge out of me that I didn't realize I possessed. I would highly recommend his services. I am looking forward to our next session.Tashanda, 2 lessons with Jacoby
My daughter appreciates Jacoby's patience and understanding. She's not a fan of math and didn't know how to begin explaining her issues with College Algebra to Jacoby but he helped guide her made sense of her confused state.Manisha, 2 lessons with Jacoby
Mr. B taught pre-calculus essentials such as trigonometry, the unit circle, graphing logarithms, polynomials, factoring, law of sines, law of cosines, and trig identities. His hours and schedule were very flexible. Call, text or leave a message and he will always get back to you.Darrell, 8 lessons with Jacoby
Knowledeable & Patient Tutor/Coach
Jacoby is currently providing private basketball lessons to our 11 year old son, who was diagnosed to be on the Autism Spectrum. Some of the things he struggles with are socializing, concentration, and a severe fear of failing. My husband and I hired Jacoby to assist him with attaining the fundamental skills of basketball. Jacoby is very knowledgeable and patient, and is providing our son with the confidence and knowledge needed, so he can successfully integrate into a team with his peers. Our son likes learning from him and looks forward to his lesson each week.Roquiah, 22 lessons with Jacoby
